I am who I am today because of my mother and all that she poured into me during my formative years. On this special Mother’s Day, I choose to celebrate my mother because she invested in me and so many others from my neighborhood.

Mother's Day - child

To share how much my mother means to me, I want to share quotes that remind me of my mother:

  • Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs… Since the payment is pure love.  ~Mildred B. Vermont. As I remember back to the many times my mother took in those from my neighborhood who were in need, this quote reminds me of how she did it because of “pure love” for them.
  • When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts.  A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.  ~Sophia Loren, Women and Beauty. Countless times, my mother gave of herself and always put my needs and my siblings’ needs before her own. She was kind-hearted, good-spirited, and most of all, loving.
  • Mother – that was the bank where we deposited all our hurts and worries.  ~T. DeWitt Talmage. I can remember when I was young and if I were to injure myself, my mother would always make sure I was better first and then she made me feel safe. Her love and support always helped me get over my momentary pain so that I could enjoy my special time with her. As I grew older and worries would set in, once again my mother was there to love and support as I dealt with each worry.

Below are some of the quotes that my friends shared with me that remind them of their mothers:

  • Marguerite Wright: My mother who is now deceased used to always say “bless your heart.” I just know my mom always warmed my heart when I talked with her and she would say so sincerely “bless your heart” or when I would tell her about someone she would say “bless their heart.” I named my website with my mom, grandmother, and aunts in mind.
  • Jesse Cole: ‎”A man showed me how to lead, but it was a woman who showed me how to love.” This quote reminds me of my mother because it came directly from my heart. One day I began to think about my parents and this thought formed. My mother introduced me to humility, sincerity, submission and servant hood. All of which are byproducts of love and connected to what God desires us to possess.
  • Kimberly Mordecai: “Well behaved women rarely make history.” I heard that first from Maria Shriver, and she said it was a favorite quote of her mother’s, Eunice Shriver. It was originally penned by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich. I love it because it inspires me… and my mom loves it because it describes me!

    Here’s my favorite quote I’d like to share: “My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.” ~ George Washington.

    I often think about the attributes my mom passed to on to me …her entrepreneurial and fun loving spirit and her never give up attitude. Mary Liu | Entrepreneur | Certified Trainer | Speaker

    Great quotes! And that’s good it is for a special person. Here is mine: “That strong mother doesn’t tell her cub, Son and Daughter, stay weak so the wolves can get you. She says, Toughen up, this is reality we are living in.” ~ Lauryn Hill.
    Mother’s day is good to thank my mother for her loving support and for her toughen-up thinking, because it made me stronger and more compassionate.
